Microsoft plans to add the ability to share data with partners via the cloud, a new initiative codenamed Project Stream
Microsoft has been working to add some sort of data sharing functionality to Windows, a project codenominated Project Stream.
In a blog post, Microsoft announced that the company would be working with a number of partners, including Canonical and Openstack, to create a software called Project Stream that would allow developers to easily share their code with third-party developers and customers.
According to the blog post , Project Stream will allow developers and businesses to share code with others.
This would mean that the code that runs in the Windows 10 operating system could be shared with other companies that want to build their own software using Windows.
The announcement came shortly after Microsoft announced plans to open a “Microsoft Research Labs” for software development, codenoted Project Stream, in an effort to help developers and companies collaborate on new products and new types of software.
Microsoft will also be partnering with other organizations to provide developers with the ability not only to share their source code, but also to create apps using the code.
As we reported last year, the company has been using the Project Stream program to work on a new version of Windows 10, codename “Build 1563”.
“This new Build 1563 will be released in Q4 2017 and is the first in a series of updates to Windows 10 for the first quarter of 2017,” Microsoft said in a blogpost.
“The goal is to build a world-class operating system that enables people to create the best apps possible on the cloud.”
Microsoft has been looking to move away from Windows as a platform since the company acquired the company in 2012 for $7.4 billion.
In the same year, Microsoft released the first version of the OS, called Windows 8.1.
